She slowly developed progressive gait disturbance and limb ataxia by the age of 58, subsequently followed by dementia and myoclonus. EEG showed periodic synchronous discharges, and MRI by diffusion weighted imaging revealed abnormal high signal intensity lesions in(More)
We herein present a report of three patients with Becker muscular dystrophy in the same family who developed complete atrioventricular block or ventricular tachycardia with severe cardiomyopathy. Our cases became unable to walk in their teens, and were introduced to mechanical ventilation due to respiratory muscle weakness in their twenties and thirties. In(More)
Previous analyses have demonstrated that packaging of the adenovirus type 5 (Ad5) genome is dependent on at least seven cis-acting elements, called AI to AVII, which are located in the left-end region of the genome. These elements have different packaging efficiencies, and without AI through AV, viral DNA cannot be packaged. Here we report the(More)
We report two 45 year old men with Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Case 1 showed a deleted exon 50 of the dystrophin gene by MLPA analysis, and Case 2 showed deleted exons 46-52. Both patients presented with severe weakness of the skeletal muscles and respiratory dysfunction, while cardiac involvement was mild and cognitive function was almost normal. The(More)
A boy with Duchenne muscular dystrophy was admitted to our hospital due to a transient loss of consciousness. Transthoracic echocardiography revealed left ventricular (LV) dilatation and diffuse hypokinesis of the LV wall. The LV wall was thin, and both non-compaction of the LV wall and marked thinning of the posterior LV wall resulting from a lesion were(More)
We report here two cases (72-year-old woman, 77-year-old-woman) with perinuclear anti-neutrophil antibody (P-ANCA) positive microscopic polyarteritis nodosa (mPN). Both patients presented with generalized convulsion, consciousness disturbance and severe hypertension several days after the administration of high dose methylpredonisolone followed by oral(More)
